About our Association

The Northwest Naturopathic Physicians Association (NWNPA) exists to complement the goals of the Northwest Naturopathic Physicians Convention (NWNPC). The NWNPC is an apolitical organization that has been in existence since 1956. Our mission is to provide excellence in naturopathic medical education, camaraderie and financial support to the naturopathic medical profession.

The NWNPA strives to provide fiscal stability to the NWNPC through membership and philanthropic resources.

The NWNPA provides opportunity to individuals and organizations to participate as members of our association. The NWNPA endeavors to preserve the art, science and principals of naturopathic medicine through educational and social exchange, while remaining an apolitical entity.

The NWNPA is not in conflict or competition with other naturopathic medical organizations. In practice, the NWNPA will be providing naturopathic medical education via convention, conference, webinar and additional educational media offerings. Complementary to these objectives will be the promotion of camaraderie through convention attendance, social media and other activities.

Proceeds from the NWNPA via the NWNPC will be used to support the financial needs of the naturopathic medical community, thus fulfilling the mission of the NWNPC.
